Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Tupelo, MS: Ballroom Dancing

Hi Mrs. Spradlin! 

My name is Savannah Suttle, and I am an instructor with The Dance Studio of Tupelo, MS. We teach ballroom dancing. One of our students, Alexandra Hopper, comes to our classes from Alabama several times per week, and she suggested that other homeschoolers might be interested in also knowing about opportunities here. 

We have Youth-specific (age 12-19) classes as follows: 

Tuesdays at 2:30pm-- East Coast Swing
Wednesdays at 4:30pm--teaching Waltz for the remainder of October, and then moving into a different dance in November
Thursdays at 1:30pm--also teaching Waltz until November. 

Of course, youth are also welcome to attend any of our other group classes. They are mostly comprised of adults, but some of them are taught by a 19 year old (A homeschooler from Alabama!), and some are taught by a 26 year old, so the age gap might not be quite as far as one would imagine. A calendar of those classes may be found at: http://www.thedancestudiotupelo.com/current-class-offerings

We also have Practice Dance Parties every Friday night at 8 pm. These are preceded by beginner and intermediate lessons starting at 7pm. Usually, it is $5 for the lesson and $5 for the party, but students receive a special rate of $5 for both. 

Additionally, all group classes are only $5 each for youth. If a student decides to take classes for the whole month, then they get one class free. 

Furthermore, parents are welcome to join in, too! It makes for a great family outing, and even date-nights. We have lots of adolescents already participating in the scene, so hopefully your kids will be availed of this opportunity, too, and an join in the fun! 

Please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions. Thank you!!

Savannah Suttle
